nue past the Auditorium 'hotel on the

At New York.
New York, Sept. 3. In view of the
fact that there was no general parade
of labor in this city and that many

trade organizations left the city by
early trains and boats for their out
ings, each 'having a program of Its
own. A Labor Day parade was held
in Jersey City under the auspices of
the United Building Trades council of
Hudson county. An incident of this
parade was the action of the Central
Federated union In refusing to march
past the grand stand, in front of the
city hall, where the parade was re
viewed by Mayor Hose and other of
ficials. The Central Federated union
is composed largely of silk weavers
and brewery employes, a large num
ber of whom are professed socialists
and opponents of both political par
ties. When tihey were two blocks
from the grand stand the men of the
Central Federated union fell out of
line and made a dotiour so as to avoid
passing the stand.

here the audience was allowed to see
!how a natural gas explosion looks.

State Department Silent IiPgardins
Progress oi Negotiations.
Week or .More- Will Ho Consumed In
Diplomatic Fiddling No Ijuio
Newt From Amisiicau
OUlclals In China.
Washington, Sept. 3. Following It3
announced policy the state depart
ment is preserving silence as to the
progress of the negotiations now afoot
respecting the withdrawal of troopo
from Peking. It is gathered, however,
tLiat up to date no definite responses
have been received to our last com
munication to the powers on this sub
ject. It is stated that in all probabil
ity at least a week will be consumed
in diplomatic exchange. In that time
one of two things may happen. Rus
sia may yield to what appears to be
the wish of nearly all the powers and
refrain from carrying out her purpose
to withdraw from Peking or the Unit
ed States forces will be marched
out. It 13 clearly the wisl of our gov
ernment that the first of these lines of
action shall be taken. Events in Pe
king, as reported in press dispatches,
encourage the government here in the
hope and almost in the expectation
that Russia will yield. Meanwhile
nothing haa been heard from Mr. Con
ger since 'his dispatch transmitted
through Mr. Fowler last Saturday and
supposed to have been sent from Pe
king about Aug. 27. General Chaffee
was equally silent officially or else his
telegrams are delayed for there was
no word from him.
The war department Is not Informed
as to the plans for camps In China for
the winter, nor is It aware that the
report that these camps are to be es
tablished, one each at Peking, Tien
Tsin and Taku is corect. The quar
termaster's department has sent to
Taku enough supplies for that depart
ment to furnish the 5,000 troops In
China, with all necessaries from Sep
tember 1 until May 1. All of these
supplies will be in China within the
next 30 or 40 days. It is believed at
the war department that the reports
concerning the wintering of troops
was sent before it was known that the
negotiations were in progress for the
withdrawal from Peking.
No Rpply Yet From France.
Paris, Sept. 3. France has not yet
replied to Russia's note regarding tho
withdrawal of troop3 from Peking. M.
Delcasse, minister of foreign affairs
and the Russian ambassador, Prince
Ouroussow went to Rambouilla to
confer upon President Loubet the de
coration of the Russian order of St.
Andrew, recently accorded him by the
czar and to present to M. Loubet the
autograph letter accompanying the
decoration. It is believed that this
wul give an opportunity for an ex
change of views whlclh will have an
effect upon tho ministerial meeting
which is to be held here Tuesday.
France regards peace as the Ilr3t re
quisite of the situation, but Is not en
tirely certain that the withdrawal of
the troops from Peking is the surest
andqulckestmethod to attain this end.
Opposed to Evacuation.
London, Sept 3. The difficulty of
communicating with the British min
ister at Peking, Sir Claude MacDon
ald, delays the promulgation of the
views of the British government In
regard to Its future steps In China, the
government being unwilling to com
mit itself publicly to a definite de
cision until Sir Claude MacDonald has
fully reported on the situation. In the
meanwhile a heated anti-evacuation
campaign continues in the press and
the trend of official opinion apparently
continues favorable to tho principle of
the suggested withdrawal from Pe
king to Tien Tsin, but not for uracua
tlon of China.
Relief Doing Good Servlc.
Washington, Sept. 3. Tho war de
partment 'has received tho following
report from Major Perley of the med
ical corps commanding the hospital
ship Relief, In an undated dispatch
from Taku: Banister reports 120
sick at front and 200 at Tien Tsin.
Many slightly ill. All wounded
brought from tho front. Relief will
take all severe eases. Launch and
boats have returned. Plenty supplies.
All doing well.
Praise, For Chaffee.
Washington, Sept. 3. The war de
partment received an undated cable
gram from General Barry at Taku re
porting that General Chaffee has
everything well in hand. His driving
power materially assisted the prompt
relief of the legation. Considering ai-
duous service, condition of troSpa is I
excellent. A considerable portion of
the dispatch, whioh the department
did not make public, related to mili
tary details.
